India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to field against arch-rivals Pakistan in the Champions Trophy final at The Oval on Sunday.

Title-holders India, who thrashed Pakistan by 124 runs in their opening group match, were unchanged from the side that hammered Bangladesh by nine wickets in Thursday's semi-final at Birmingham's Edgbaston.

But Pakistan made one change, with the fit-again Mohammad Amir, who missed Wednesday's impressive eight-wicket semi-final win over previously unbeaten tournament hosts England with a back spasm, returning.

Amir replaced fellow left-arm quick Rumman Raees, who marked his one-day international debut with two wickets against England.

India's lone loss so far in this tournament, featuring the world's top eight ODI nations, was at The Oval when they suffered a surprise seven-wicket defeat by Sri Lanka on June 8.

Pakistan, however, have lost all three of their previous matches against India in the knockout stages of International Cricket Council events.
